Job security is lost piece by piece

Trade unions are often unpopular with strikes in Germany, such as paralyzing train traffic or ensuring that kindergartens remain closed. But despite all the trouble: the right to strike, unions and works councils are weapons that workers in tough clashes with Company have fought for. And guarantee a certain security.

And that is precisely what is being lost piecemeal - globalization, increasing flexibility in the world of work, softening of rights such as protection against dismissal and disempowerment of trade unions and works councils.

Termination can be any meeting

This can lead to a dismissal today. But this simple statement is of little comfort to those affected: the loss of the job is not only a financial problem, which is often cushioned by state aid.

It is also often associated with social stigmatization, sometimes even with the loss of the colleagues 'and friends' circle. No wonder the loss of the job for many is still a big shock.

Shock and stigma

This is especially true for those who would never have expected it in life, and then, in spite of seeming certainty, be dismissed from today to tomorrow. Just one still went to his daily business and now one is sitting opposite the boss, who makes one with sober words that he in the future, the labor force of the person (s) concerned. But how to deal with this situation correctly?

Everything changes suddenly from one minute to the next. Even if that's not so easy to grasp - it's definitely a shock.

First reactions

So advises Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®Coach and coach Isabel Nitzsche, to wait for the first rage to get lost. For anger and anger should be kept better in such moments:

“Admit that you are in shock and do nothing for now. You are too light-headed to be able to make sensible decisions. If you go on a confrontation course, your boss will fight against it and that will only reduce the basis for future negotiations about the framework conditions of your departure. ”

Do not sign anything!

For the crisis expert, one thing is particularly important: “In such a situation, do not sign anything, and certainly not a termination agreement. Because their agreements are binding and cannot be undone by you later! ”

Anyone who wants to sue his dismissal has three weeks to do so. No reason, therefore, to let the employer be put under pressure, when, for example, the signing of a cancellation agreement goes. Nitzsche explains:

“Wait in peace until the first shock subsides and you can think reasonably clearly again. Then you can talk to trusted people of your choice, your partner, friends, a coach and a lawyer. Aside from factual issues that need clarification, talking helps process the shock better. ”

Prepare for dismissal

But even in advance you can prepare for a possible termination: Since today everyone should expect to lose his job again, you should make sure that the resume is a salable product at all times - preferably, by constantly thinking about it Informs what qualifications are needed in the job market. Coach Isabel Nitzsche advises:

“Anyone who checks the job market in the newspaper and job exchanges on the Internet every four weeks gets a good overview. If you are no longer looking for your own qualifications, you need to make corrections as soon as possible and continue your professional training. ”

The fact is: a notice can hit anyone today - fast, hard and painful. Because who loses his job, must first cope with the shock. 10 tips on how to react in case of a case and how to get out of unemployment again in a job.

  1. Digest the shock: Give yourself a few weeks to digest the first shock. Only then can you think about what you should do now?
  2. Do not feel ashamed: Unemployment is still seen as a shortcoming in Germany due to social reasons. She is completely normal. And you are not to blame. So no reason to be ashamed.
  3. Search information: Look for information about job vacancies, potential employers and current application procedures.
  4. Stay realistic: The situation on the labor market has deteriorated rapidly in recent years. Adjust your demands to the current situation.
  5. Make contacts: Whether on the Internet or in the professional and private environment: the exchange with others helps to better deal with the situation. And maybe a new job will come out of it.
  6. Be patient: Even if you sometimes have the impression that nothing is going on, patience is important when looking for a job. After all, all measures do not always lead to success.
  7. Be self-confident: Be aware of your abilities and goals and carry this self-confidently outward.

    ”“ Anyone who checks the job market in the newspaper and job exchanges on the Internet every four weeks will get a good overview.

      Why not? Lifelong learning is becoming more and more important. The crux is rather to choose the right one from the thousands of offers. And one can ask the question whether it really has to be formal further training or whether the qualification can also be self-taught. Recently I had an interesting discussion with Anja C. Wagner and wrote about it in the WELT.

      e.g. because you e.g. at 50 after a 8,5 hour day you no longer have the power to do it - not to mention the cost of courses?

    • Profession pictures

      Examine possibilities of restructuring in the job, set other priorities - I say from my own experience. As for the costs: What are MOOCS for? Talk to Anja Wagner from ununi.tv - also on the topic of 50+ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLCowfk_7K8
